The acquisition of Bell South by AT&T might be at hand. CNBC's David Faber has his ear to the ground -- and "The Street."
Faber says these companies are pushing hard to try and close the deal today.
The deal has been in the works for a while (much like today's earlier deal between News Corp and Liberty Media). You might remember, at one point in the process there was a big hold up as one of the FCC commissioners had to recuse himself.
Apparently, the negotiations are moving forward. When it's done, the deal would result in the biggest telecom company in the country, by far.
Stay tuned - we'll let you know - first - if they're able to pull it off.
